THE Kalamunda Cougars A grade teams faced WA Amateur Football League powerhouse University on Saturday, and were outclassed in all three grades.
The colts competed well early and were only a goal down at half-time, but ended up losing 14.9 (93) to 2.7 (19). Young gun Sammy Hodgkins led the way with Ryan Newbold again in the votes.
The reserves scored their only goal at the start of the game, and from then on Uni did as they pleased, running out victors 11.15 (81) to 1.4 (10). Nathan Warwick was good along with Adam Pottinger’s brother Trent, who was best on the ground.
The league side were just never able to get back-to-back goals to mount any run, and poor ball use hurt them all day. Brett van Groningen was second best, with “back six get the chicks” proponent Matt Giglia judged best on, despite the fact he hasn’t been seen with a woman since 2012.
Kris Trenberth and Josh Fairless were best on for the D2 league team, in a sparkling team effort in the dismantling of Ballajura 17.14 (116) to 5.7 (37), and consolidate 2nd spot on the ladder.
Earlier the D2 reserves went down by just 6 points, but they will look to bounce back at Ray Owen next Saturday.
